It’s summertime and the world is opening up for business, so what better for a poker player to do than jump on a plane and head to the bright lights of Sin City. Las Vegas has some of the best card rooms in the world with glitz and glamour not found anywhere else on the planet.

So you’re either searching for where you’ll be grinding for a week or two in Nevada, or for a welcome bonus wildz casino and staying at home. Not much of a choice.

Here’s our pick of three great card rooms to try out when you’re next in Las Vegas.


#1 Venetian

Regular cash games run between $1/$3 to $5/$10 for limit hold’em, NL, and PLO. Tournaments run daily with some very popular series appearing throughout the year.

What is really popular about this venue is the standard of decor. Styled around an Italy of many years ago, players feel that they’ve been transported many miles away. The great Italian food on offer is enough to keep you returning on its own.


#2 Bellagio

This casino houses one of the most famous poker rooms in the world, not just in Las Vegas. You can expect to find cash games running around the clock as high as $80/$160 daily. Mixed games are also a welcome addition in this card room, not found as frequently in other venues.

Tournaments still haven’t kicked off again following the pandemic at the Bellagio but usually they run daily. The 7,000 sq.ft.room is used for major events such as the World Poker Tour on a regular basis and also houses a popular sportsbook for those who enjoy betting on their favourite events.

Old school poker fans will be interested in keeping an eye out for the comings and goings in Bobby’s Room where the top stars of poker meet to play high-stakes. It might be renamed Legend’s Room now but it will always be Bobby’s in our minds.


#3 Aria

The Aria Casino is possibly the hottest poker spot in the city right now, and a must-visit for any poker player in town. PokerGO recently built a $20 million studio in front of the casino where all manner of poker is filmed and streamed to the masses.

All limits of cash games can be found for just about any common game you can think of. Tournament players will be delighted to hear that events run from daily small buy-in tournaments to major series where the likes of Phil Hellmuth can be seen playing for seven-figure prizes.

Not the biggest card room on the Strip with only 24 tables but certainly one of the nicest, if not the best overall.
